Roycemore School Director of AdmissionsHi, I'm Amanda Avery, Roycemore School's Director of Admissions

Just as every student at Roycemore is treated as an individual, we understand that every path to enrollment is as unique as the family undertaking the process. I truly like kids and I feel it’s important to approach Admissions with enthusiasm and empathy. I hope you will feel comfortable to ask me questions at any step along the way.

Applications for 2019/20 admission are now available. For priority admission consideration, applications should be submitted by January 31st. I encourage you and your family to schedule a personal tour with me to become more familiar with the school. I set aside a large part of my schedule for individual appointments and tours, and am here throughout the summer months. I look forward to hearing from you, soon!

We encourage families to apply online as it simplifies submission and provides parents a tool for tracking online the status of their admission after their application has been submitted.
